PROBLEM: Determine sump and pump capacity to control surface water in an excava-
tion, 4 acres in area, located in Little Rock, Ark., for a rainstorm frequency of 1 in
5 years and assuming c = 0.9. Assume all runoff to one sump in bottom of excava-
V R = cRA
V R - (x 10 g a l )
Assume sump pump capacity = 4000 gpm. From plot, required storage = 50,000 gal.
